Salina Police will be joining 150 law enforcement agencies across Kansas in the coming weeks to strictly enforce seat belt laws.
Police Lt. Russ Lamer tells KSAL News that beginning Monday May 19th through Sunday June 1st, officers will be specifically looking for occupants who are not properly buckled up in vehicles.
“Several officers will be out throughout the day looking for violators,” Lt. Lamer said.
Police plan to ramp up seat belt enforcement before and after work hours and at night.
The extra hours are paid for through a grant from the Special Traffic Enforcement Program (S.T.E.P.).
